With Nepal’s fantastic trekking infrastructure, you don’t need to do much more than fly in, arrange a trekking permit, and start walking, but you do need to decide where to go – no easy task in a country with this many mountains. Towering snowy peaks trace the northern reaches of Nepal in a mighty sweep from 7132m Mount Api in the west to 8586m Kanchenjunga in the east. Most trekkers make a beeline for Everest Base Camp Trekking, or the looping trek encircling the Annapurna Range Trekking near Pokhara, but there are dozens of other treks, some starting within walking distance of the capital, Kathmandu, and others only accessible on challenging camping expeditions with packhorses and guides.

Here’s a list of what to expect from Nepal’s top trekking regions. Pick your route and discovering Nepal’s best treks!
